    If You’ve Just Finished Parched, book 1….

    Then know this… Of course that’s not the end of Clarity and Baron! The FUN is reading how they get back together (wink)… The continued fun is watching them STAY together… Of course their story continues in book 3, and then in book 5, but don’t skip book two to get there. Book two is short, about 130 pages and all of the main characters in that book will be in book 3. Plus book two is free! Oh, and if you’ve read book 2 first, then, ABSOLUTELY, Zill, Vayle and Derek’s stories do continue in book 3 and 5 too! But you have to read book 4 before going…

    If “The Seventh Sister” Is The First Book You Read In the Parched Series, Then…

    You should make sure you read the description. It’s in the Note From The Author section on Amazon and reads like this: This book in the Parched novel series is shorter than average to deal with the limitations of writing in the first person point of view (or POV). Parched Book One, and most of the series is told in Clarity’s POV but as the saga continues to unfold other sisters will be introduced, and their lives are interesting as well! After completing Book 1, I knew it was time to introduce Zillael, who in my head had this entire backstory. She is falling for two supernatural creatures and how…

    A Note from an Organic Writer…

    Listen… I have an advanced degree in a critical studies subject. I’m from the world of big words, carefully crafted language and sentences, and critical analysis. I mean, the more we used obscure language, the more the professors felt certain that they were doing their job. Especially in that rhetoric class…. forgot the professors name but I really liked him a lot because he MEANT it. Like, MEANT it. He felt so passionate about it all! He loved it. Gosh… what was his name…. Anyway… I practice organic story-telling. I picture my characters navigating the real world, our world in black and white and all the other colors. They are…

    Oh Now I Get It… The Intoxicated Writer Cliche…

    But it’s not a cliche…. So today, after I left the coffee shop, concluding a period of an “OK” writing day. There is no sun in Seattle today. Look, it’s true… no sun, too dreary to be too creative. At least for me. What I’ve learned is that I’m a true Californian girl. I took the sun for granted but honey, sweetie, my lovely sun, I have missed you while I was gone and know your value… I see the light! So, after crossing 4th Avenue I decided to head to Macrini bakery to see if they have any rolly-polies left. However, as I hit 1st Avenue, the smell of…

    Out West…

    A blue sky evening, orange powdering the western horizon with a bright full moon not fully formed to the east and on top of all of that beauty, surrounded by the purple rock mountains…. And a seventy degree evening… And MEXICAN FOOD! Like REAL Mexican food… Can someone tell the counterfeiters in Seattle to AT LEAST use cilantro.. At least… Excuse me while I enjoy heaven… Peace.
